Software Licensing

If this isn’t an argument for open source software, then I don’t know what is: Giant Robot Imprisons Parked Cars

The gist: a giant city-owned robotic parking garage in Hoboken traps hundreds of cars inside. Why? …because the license for the software that runs the robots expired.
